Newtown Playground is due for an upgrade! The current playground was developed by local residents over 20 years ago, in collaboration with Council. This created a sense of community in the local area. Sadly, some of the equipment has become unsafe and needs replacing. My idea is to replace the cordoned off equipment with fun new equipment for kids of all ages to enjoy. Also to renew the BBQ and add seating so families can continue to love this wonderful community space for everyday play, barbecues and birthday parties. Let's bring that sense of community connectedness back through this project.

Used to go to this playgrounds as a child when visiting the grandparents. I'd love to take the kids there (only been once or twice). It really needs some TLC before I consider taking the kids there again.

This was my neighbourhood playground as a child spent lots of time hear but it is now in need of an upgrade. Its a big area with a lot of unused space at the moment would be great to see it put to use my little nephews love going there now and it is a growing area.

This playground is a favourite of many children in the area, especially mine. It is becoming more and more rundown, and its about time it received some TLC :)

I lived over the back fence of the Newtown playground from when I was 7 until I was 22. It was my second home. I saw old equipment go and new equipment arrive. My 5 children were also lucky to have it as a favourite place while visiting their Gran for many years. It is definitely needing a refurbishment.

We moved to newtown just over 20yrs ago and have made many visits to this lovely playground our daughter enjoyed the playground and now our grand children do. It does need a facelift to move with the times its done a great job and made many happy faces now with a revamp it will continue to bring joy to the next generations.
